Thrud is a Nord barbarian who has been learning to read from Dilborn, but recently Dilborn has disappeared. The poor Nord asks for help in finding his lost friend and teacher.

He wears a common shirt with matching pants and he carries an ebony war axe. Aside from his natural resistance to shock, immunity to frost, ability to shield himself, and a natural frost damage spell, he knows no spells.

When first spoken to:

"Hello, nice man/lady! You see Dilborn? Dilborn my friend! Dilborn gone three days now, and Thrud sad."
"Dilborn big and mighty wizard. Dilborn read books to Thrud… all the words, big words, two, maybe three times. Now Dilborn gone, no one read books to Thrud. Thrud sad. Thrud miss friend Dilborn. You help Thrud find Dilborn?"
Okay, I will help you
"Thrud happy, happy, %PCRace. Find Dilborn now, yes? Thrud see Dilborn go down in sewers near here. Dilborn go to sewers lots to meet friends, Dilborn says. Most times, Dilborn back soon, and happy, happy. But Dilborn not back soon now. We go to sewers, find Dilborn!"

If you refuse his request:

"Thrud sad. Thrud want Dilborn come back soon."

While he is a follower:

"Go to sewers, %PCName. Thrud see Dilborn go to sewers."

Once Dilborn is rescued:

"Dilborn back! Dilborn back! Dilborn, Thrud says Dilborn never go to sewers again! Here, %PCRace. Take Thrud's favorite book. It is very good… many words… on BOTH sides of pages."
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thrud hears that you save his friend Dilborn. Thrud happy, Dilborn happy, ALL happy."

If Dilborn dies:

"Thrud not want to talk. Thrud sad. Friend Dilborn gone."
"You try help Thrud free Dilborn. But Dilborn gone. Thrud sad. Now Thrud got books, but not got Dilborn. Thrud stay here now and pray to book spirits so Dilborn not be lonely."


  • Although Thrud speaks in short sentences on quest-related topics (e.g. "Thrud happy, Dilborn happy, ALL happy."), if you ask him about anything else he speaks just like any other citizen.
  • Thrud is most likely a reference to Thrud the Barbarian, a parody of Conan the Barbarian.
